At Polyco Healthline, we're committed to excellence in everything we do - from wrapping pallets to Board-level presentations. It's not unusual to see our Directors walk the warehouse floor, ensuring everyone feels part of the family. All our efforts among our 200+ staff are underpinned by the same company values. While the four pillars below might seem run-of-the-mill, our interpretation of these founding principles makes them unique to us. There's really no other business in the world quite like Polyco Healthline.
What We Stand For
We keep it simple Since selling our first coverall in 1968, we've kept our feet firmly on the ground. We like it that way. And we've found our customers do too. In business, it's easy for things to get overcomplicated. But rest assured, "simple" does not mean "trivial". In fact, more often than not, to create simpler processes requires more work. We scrutinise practices, reduce excess and optimise wherever we can.
We work together Although our Centre of Excellence and Distribution is located in Bourne, Lincolnshire, our company is spread far and wide. We have two satellite offices in Central and South London, with additional staff dotted around the UK and overseas. By leveraging technology to negate those distances, we champion collaboration among ourselves and then extend that spirit to our customers and partners.
We are ambitious Clearly defined goals and agile processes don't give us time for perfectionism. Instead we support each other to deliver the best work we can and then share successes with our clients, so their businesses can grow and prosper.
We care You might think this goes without saying when supplying the Health and Safety industry. But we make sure every activity is laced with care. Customer interactions are our highest priority and always conducted with a personal touch. And we feel deep satisfaction knowing that our protection and hygiene solutions aren't just fit for purpose, but perfectly fit the individuals wearing them.
Our commitment to a more sustainable world!

I joined Polyco Healthline in 2010 and worked in customer services. Even though I knew little about the company I joined with high hopes.
I had worked in customer service and sales in the past, I saw the opportunity at Polyco Heathline, luckily they were impressed with me in the interviewing process and I did enough to get accepted.
I worked in customer services for two years, dealing with day to day enquiries and helping with product information, stock, and orders. There was a young team and we all got along quite well. I then had the opportunity to move into sales. It’s been challenging but a good laugh as well.
Everyday is different in my job, there isn't a set procedure of doing it. I've always valued to be honest with customers, don't over promise, stand by what you say, and make sure you follow it up.
Polyco Healthline is a big establishment, even in my experience, going from customer service to sales, there have always been other opportunities to move in different directions if I wanted the option. The great thing about the company is that it is always looking to move forward, so there will be other opportunities along the way, it’s just about trying to find out what suits you.
I was in my early 20s when I joined the company in 2006. My first job since arriving from Slovakia, I dreamt of new career opportunities and a quality life.
Through a temporary agency, I was among seven other warehouse workers, unloading containers at the newly opened DC1 warehouse. After that first positive experience, I introduced my brother to the company, who has also had a really progressive career.
After nine months, I’d received sufficient training to become a picker, fork-lift driver and team leader. But, ambitious for more, I saw an opportunity to apply to be a Logistics Administrator in the office and put myself forward for the role.
Steve McCarthy, Group Logisitcs and Regulatory Affairs Manager saw my potential and actually promoted me to a higher level: I became a Logistics Manager.
Since then, the business has grown considerably, adding three more state-of-the-art warehouses to the Bourne distribution facility. Today, I’m the Logistics Manager for all four and I love every minute. There’s a great atmosphere. And having the Owners and Directors walking on the shop floor each week, knowing everyone by name, creates a really close-knit family feel.
As an employer, Polyco Healthline offers regular training opportunities for all the warehouse staff – from licences in fork-lift driving to first aid and fire marshal courses. Such opportunities mean my team stay motivated as they grow with the company.
After studying art and design from an early age at school, I first stepped into a design studio for the travel industry.
From there, I joined Polyco Healthline in 2004 where I began a steep learning curve into everything design and technology related. My first task was to set up an in-house studio, which I grew into an active production house, including a garment embroidery machine.
I can easily trace my passion for exploring design hardware and software back to those early days.
Today, with the company’s support, my skills have widened into management, project management and brand marketing. I’m now the Design Manager for the Digital and Direct Business Unit, and currently responsible for developing our e-commerce website and portals. My special interest here is to gauge how design influences customer behaviour.
I keep pace with advances in technology and seek to exploit the commercial opportunities they bring. So it’s been great to have bosses who really listen to me and invest in my ideas.
Thanks to my design background, those ideas will always have a creative slant. I look forward to growing with Polyco Healthline. It’s motivating to know the company never stops innovating its products and market channels.
I started my career at Tesco, where I completed Tesco’s management training programme. Not content with settling in retail, I really wanted to expand my skill base and experience in sales and online.
So, in 2015, I joined the Company as a Sales Executive for industrial customers, where I managed a team of two and we had great success hitting our targets.
After 18 months in that role, I was invited to head up the Customer Service Team of 13 Advisors. While much of my product and marketing knowledge came from working directly with clients, it was the company’s belief in me that gave me the confidence to grow into the role and succeed.
Now I work with my team and cross functionally, which has provided amazing insight into the service, operational and logistics side of the business.
I’m ambitious by nature and definitely looking forward to a successful future with Polyco Healthline and increasing my commercial skillset.
After working in hospitality and living in Enfield most of my life, I was seeking a new challenge. So, in 2015 I joined the Customer Service Team in Enfield as a Customer Service Executive. In 2016 I took the opportunity to relocate with the company and join the newly formed Polyco Healthline Customer Service Team in Bourne.
It was definitely a big move to relocate to Lincolnshire. This was made easier with support from my family and help from Polyco Healthline, so I quickly settled professionally and socially. I was a big fan of sharing ‘best practice’ from my old and new teams. I guess this got noticed, because I was promoted to Team Leader within ten months.
Although I’m young and have lots of options, right now I couldn’t be happier. We have a great laugh as a team and enjoy our jobs to the point that – on some days – it doesn’t feel like work.
